信心游戏

对于国家、文明乃至个人而言,信心是生活的关键因素。信心是希望的要素。信心让你展望未来,实现甚至超越你的能力。信心来自自我内部,但却可以通过别人感觉你的方式得到强化或者削弱。但是,信心正像是血压一样必须得到平衡。信心太多或者太少,问题就开始了。过度自信有可能会像是缺乏自信一样有破坏作用。

让我们看一下美国身陷伊拉克的例子。布什政府对于其目标,也就是将中东民主化的合理性过分自信正是那里层出不穷的灾祸背后的关键因素。

最近,我同做出从萨达姆手中“解放”伊拉克决定的关键人物之一进行了辩论。他是一位知名的新保守派人物,对于其远景设计合理性具有坚定不移的信心,在我看来就像是一个民主的布尔什维克。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
